This is highly unfair, Aahz.  Tim only pokes holes in three (just three!)
kinds of ideas:

1. Incorrect ideas.
2. Useful ideas.
3. Correct ideas.

I have always been tolerant-- even praiseful! --of ideas that are so off the
wall that they can't be called either correct or incorrect with a straight
face -- provided only, of course, that they're useless.
